Believe it or not, anyone can be a leader! If you have influence in your home, your local school district, your career, or even your neighborhood, you are a leader. And everyone wins when leaders get better! 

We love the Global Leadership Summit because it’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity to grow in your leadership – and for someone who has influence at work, it’s a can’t-mis event! However, conferences often require some time off to be approved. 

If you’re not sure how your supervisor will respond to the idea, we’ve got you covered. Try out this open letter to request time off to attend the Global Leadership Summit! 


Dear [Supervisor’s Name], 

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to request two days off to attend the Global Leadership Summit (GLS), an event that has been empowering leaders worldwide for over 30 years. The Summit is an extraordinary opportunity for professional development, and I am excited about the potential benefits it can bring to our team and organization. 

The Global Leadership Summit is more than just a conference; attending GLS will provide me with access to cutting-edge leadership insights and practical tools that are essential for our continued success. Here are the areas I expect to grow in as a result of going to GLS this year: 

  • Leadership Excellence: Learning from globally recognized leaders in business, education, and ministry will elevate my leadership capabilities, which will have a positive ripple effect for our team. 
  • Strategic Thinking: The sessions are designed to enhance strategic thinking, equipping me with the ability to foresee challenges and opportunities, and to develop proactive strategies. 
  • Effective Communication: The communication techniques and leadership principles shared at the Summit will help me to better articulate our vision and goals and build stronger relationships within our organization, factors that will contribute to a more cohesive and motivated team. 
  • Innovation and Creativity: Exposure to innovative ideas and creative solutions from a diverse range of industries will inspire new approaches and drive innovation within our team. 
  • Personal Development: The Summit also focuses on personal growth, ensuring that I return not only as a better leader but also as a more well-rounded individual, capable of contributing to a positive and productive environment here at work as well as in my community and my home. 

By attending the Global Leadership Summit, I will gain valuable knowledge and skills that can be directly applied here at work. This experience will not only enhance my personal growth but will also translate into tangible benefits for our team. 

I am committed to sharing the insights and strategies I gain with our team to maximize the return on this investment. I believe that this opportunity aligns perfectly with our organization's commitment to continuous improvement and excellence. 

Thank you for considering this request. I am eager to contribute even more effectively to our team’s success through the learnings from the Global Leadership Summit!
